Amphoteric Surfactants are versatile surfactants that exhibit cationic behavior at acidic pH, anionic behavior at alkaline pH, and nonionic behavior within their isoelectric or zwitterion range. Amphoterics are generally used in combination with primary surfactants such as sulfates or nonionics to improve foaming properties, thickening, and cleaning performance.

- Cocoamido Propyl Hydroxy Sultaine
- Disodium Cocoampho Dipropionate
- Disodium Cocoampho Dipropionate (Methanol Free)
- Disodium Cocoampho Diacetate
Green / Biodegradable
Alkyl Polyglucosides and Polyglycol Ethers are a relatively new generation of green surfactants that provide an eco-friendly and completely biodegradable alternative to nonyl phenol ethoxylates and alcohol ethoxylates. APGs act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, solubilisers and foaming agents, and can be used to formulate shampoos, washes, shower gels and more.
- Coco Glucoside
- Decyl Glucoside
- Lauryl Glucoside
Imidazolines are cationic surfactants used as water repellents, emulsifiers and dispersing agents. They are oil soluble and may be dispersed in aqueous media. The ability of imidazolines to form cations means they will be strongly absorbed onto negatively charged surfaces of metals, fibres, plastics, glass and minerals; thereby converting them to hydrophobic surfaces.

- Aminoethyl Imidazoline
- Hydroxyethyl Imidazoline
- Imidazoline Blends
EO/PO Block Copolymers
EO/PO Block Copolymers, made from ethylene oxide and propylene oxide, provide a broad range of physical properties that make them versatile, low-foam nonionic surfactants. These products act as defoamers, wetting agents, dispersants and solubilizers for a variety of cleaning applications such as rinse aids, detergents, hard surface cleaners, dishwasher liquids and car washes.
- EO/PO Block Copolymer (L 44)
- EO/PO Block Copolymer (L 61)
- EO/PO Block Copolymer (L 62)
- EO/PO Block Copolymer (L 64)
- EO/PO Block Copolymer (L 68)
Phosphate Esters are are 100% active anionic surfactants supplied as Mono Ester or Mono/Diester mixtures. Due to their alkali stability and solubility, phosphate esters are highly versatile surfactants as hydrotropes and effective coupling agents, offering good detergency, outstanding wetting, solubilization and emulsification properties.
- Phosphated Alcohols
- Phosphated Alcohol Ethoxylates
- Phosphated Phenol Ethoxylates
Ethoxylates / Propoxylates
Alcohol Ethoxylates and Propoxylates are a major class of non-ionic surfactants made from various fatty alcohols ethoxylated and/or fatty acid propoxylated with various degrees of alkoxylation. These products are widely used in laundry detergents and to a lesser extent in household cleaners, institutional and industrial cleaners and other process industries.
- Alcohol Ethoxylates
- Alcohol Propoxylates
With increased demand for paraben-free and formaldehyde-free formulations, we offer alternatives that have similar effective preservative qualities, yet are gentle on the skin and are environmentally friendly. These products can be used in different combinations to create new blends that enhance preservative activity and antimicrobial properties.
